 Description

An incomplete and very worn medieval copper-alloy buckle with integral plate likely dating from c.AD 1230-1400.

The buckle remains only as stubs of an oval loop and an integral plate. The plate is pierced in two places, the one next to the buckle likely for a pin, the other for a rivetles, both of which are now missing. The plate is broken irregularly at the attachment end and the loop had broken along the loop. At the loop end there are two triangular wings are present just behind the pin hole.

This buckle seems to fit a group of Single loop spur buckles with integral plates or similar small buckles with integral plates. Whitehead (1996, 34-33, nos. 178 and 201) illustrates a similar examples dating to 1250-1400. Egan and Pritchard (1991, 78-79, no.321) illustrates and discuss a number of similar buckles which they date to 13th or 14th century.
